Week 2 – Red Wines of the World
Here we’ll explore the huge variety of red wine styles to be found. From light and fruity Pinot Noir to the smoky, spicy Rioja; the elegant Cabernet Sauvignon to the behemoth that is Australian Shiraz! As well as trying at least 6 more fantastic wines, we’ll also talk about tannin and why some wines get better with age, as well as some other useful tips like why/when you should decant wine and what temperature to serve it at.
This evening we’ll move on to talk about white wines and taste at least 6 delicious examples along the way. We’ll talk a bit about the grape varieties and what they taste like as well as the wine regions that they come from, consider their potential for food and wine matching and further hone your wine tasting skills. We'll also cover things like use of oak, find out which is better - cork or screw cap, and bust a few wine myths too.
Not a problem. You may either send a substitute, or pick up the missed session on a subsequent Beginners Course, or obtain a voucher valid for other North London Wine School courses and tastings.
